Photo Competition: 1st Place in Color & Best in Show!

I have stated before I am part of a local camera club, Huntington Valley Camera Club ( page). At our recent meeting we had an open competition with a local judge from New York Camera & Video in Bensalem. Out of all the photos entered for color, my photo "Gothic Night" won first place. It then went head to head with 1st place in Monochrome and ended up taking Best in Show for the night. This was my first time placing at a monthly competition and I was very proud of my photo. Below is the photo that won. The only thing you can't see is the fact that I printed it on metallic paper through

'Gothic Night'

Photo Note: This was taken on Liberty Island. The pier was chained off from the public and I just enjoyed how it looked like a pathway to South Manhattan in the background. The dark comical effect was a result of running the multiple exposures through the HDR process in Photomatix Pro.
